diagnosis of lyme disease is done on physical findings like eyrthema migran, nerve palsy, arthritis and exposure to tick. blood tests are not recommended. some people may not have the typical erythema or rash diagnosis doesnt require palsy to be present. see the link for details

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
